BalanceFilter in ParaView

The Balance filter uses the VTK filter vtkBalancedRedistributePolyData. The filter performs balanced redistribution of cells for the active data set.

  1. First the user selects the data they wish to operate on from the Selection Window. It will be highlighted yellow when this occurs.
  2. The user can then select Filter->Balance from the main menu.
  3. The Accept button must be pressed before the output will be generated.

Unlike the more sophisticated D3 filter, the Balance filter is restricted to Polygonal data and does not guarantee spatial locality in the newly allocated blocks.

Refer to the information on ParaView on Multiple Processors for more information.

This filter is not available in ParaView 3.2.1.
